Unordinary Déjà vu

When our 1-week vacation started, I had nothing else to do in our house but eat, surf the internet, clean all the areas of the living room, wash the dishes, cook meals for myself because I am always alone from morning to night and of course, sleep. I used to love sleeping. At first, I…

Au Revoir

I wandered in the shore, waiting for the sun to set, Avocets chirping, cold breeze blowing giving courage, tranquility— life. The ocean looked calm, as calm as the clouds in the sky, waves’ sweet melody, so harmonious, so smooth. I can hear it, and sense it.   As I continued walking, miles from where I…

I’m tired

I’m tired. I’m tired of recalling those nights when I heard shouts from my parents’ room at 3am. I’m tired of knowing that Mom and Dad’s priority was not us. I’m tired of seeing them with their new families. I’m tired of looking at my nephew’s sad eyes, longing for attention and for real happiness…

The Struggles of a Broken Home

At a very young age, I have realized growing up with a broken home was quite a shitty experience─ I mean, who would have even want to be in this situation? The kind of family that I have is not the kind of family other people would dream about and the condition I have right…

Questions I Hate Most

I wrote this blog post while I was inside a non-air bus, heading to our province and yes─ I literally struggled writing this one. It’s just there’s something in the deepest part of myself that pushed me to write what’s on my mind before I forget those. The topic that suddenly popped up in my…

New Sentro Beach Club Lubu-an Baybay

In Davao, the best way to spend this was to have beach outings and island hopping; others would probably go to other places outside the city but for those who were searching for cheapest yet beautiful resorts where both kids and adults…

Drowned In The Sea of Grief

I desired to be as free as the clouds above, drift as the wind blows. shed tears whenever and wherever I want, and vanish as darkness eats the world. As I opened eyes in the morning, the light tries to surprise me. Giving hope when I needed not hope, lending a hand when I need…

Davao City’s Perfect Combo

I remembered those days when Mom and I went to a market 4am in the morning to buy goods, vegetables, meat and any recipes for her small restaurant business. The reason why I go  with her was to eat puto-maya and drink hot tsokolate, in her friend’s stall, which I considered as a PERFECT COMBO….

‘Till next time!

This blog post specifically talks about my two friends Remel and his wife, Catherine who will migrate this 15th of June 2017 to Canada. As you observed, I have mentioned in my previous blog posts that these good people will leave Philippines and it honestly made me unhappy, after knowing that they need to move…

Spring

We lay together, field of golden daffodils, that blooms in the Spring.
